“This song felt really natural in the way we made it because it was more about capturing the essence of a moment we had just witnessed as opposed to trying to create something out of nothing,” reflects Zoya. “I think that’s why it’s such a stripped-down, organic song mostly made of vocal harmonies and an earthy drum and bassline. I wanted it relaxed and void of pretentiousness – just a faithful representation of our emotions. It’s explicit, honest and very literal. We wanted the listener to feel like they were on the couch, living the moment with us.”
“‘Strangers In The House’ is a great example of what happens behind the scenes,” says Zoya. “Soran and I have been making music every other day since the start of the pandemic and his house has become a sort of music sanctuary. It’s where we gather to chill, make music and collaborate with other artists. I always try to find new creative pockets to explore and to push myself artistically and Soran’s flair for moods and melodies bring structure and colour to my penmanship.”

- I have always, and will always, want to be an astronaut. If the opportunity arises, I’m going to space without hesitation.
I’m from a town called Rouyn-Noranda. It’s French speaking and is also known as “The Copper Capital of Canada”.
The first time I ever wrote with somebody else was with Benny Adam and the song we made that day, “Start Over”, is #19 on the Top 40 radio chart in Canada as we speak.
I love history, especially the WW2 era. I’m not sure why, but I find the subject fascinating. I waste an incredible amount of time binge-watching WW2 documentaries and recaps on YouTube.
I love traveling. That’s part of why a music career just makes sense for me. I get to travel around the world with an excuse!
